Paper out now: Stem cell voices carry

Adam wrote a News & Views article published today in Nature Chemical Biology. In the same issue, through a combination of experiments and mathematical modeling, Daneshpour et al. discovered that — while differentiating but not self-renewing — embryonic stem cells communicate over far greater distances than previously appreciated, exhibiting quorum sensing-like behavior. “Voices carry” comes from here, for any readers who happen not to be new wave afficionados.
